Brazilian Television Had its First Gay Male Kiss Last Night: VIDEO


Two men kissed for the first time on Brazilian TV on Friday in Amor à Vida, a soap opera produced by Rede Globo, the country's largest network, as the result of a campaign on social media.

The kiss took place between the show's closeted villain, Felix (Matthew Solano), who redeemed himself in the eyes of the audience and came together with Niko (Thiago Fragoso) after Felix's father suffered a stroke and they decided that their lives would be better together rather than apart.

Back in 2005, hunky soap star Bruno Gagliasso filmed a gay kiss that was supposed to have aired on the popular soap América, but the scene was cut from the broadcast.

  3. Oh so romantic, music, kiss soft and gentle. It seems soaps do it first, then prime time.

  8. They were very cowards in America because people really liked the gay couple and it was the last episode (one of the guys was gorgeous), but at least it was the beginning of being inclussive, and the gay characters weren't linked to being the gay best friend of the female main character (one was her child and the other was an employee)
    The truth is telenovelas evolved a lot faster than american soap operas (maybe that's the reason they are not struggling with the ratings).
    Gays become more common in telenovelas and their roles are becoming more relevant.
    It's relevant to say that the roles of women in telenovelas evolved a lot in recent years too, from the damsel in distress who needs a man to strong women

  9. Very funny Mark :)

    The original version is of course removed. But it probably exists somewhere else.

  11. The music? Very close, Juan, it is the last movement of the Mahler Third Symphony

  12. OOOOOOOps, you are right of course, Juan, it is the Adagietto from Mahler 5

  13. Which one is supposed to be "hot"? They look like hairdressers.

    "What kind of guy does a lot for me
    Superman with a lobotomy
    My father's outta Harvard
    My brother's outta Yale
    Well, the guy I took home last night
    Just got outta jail"

  14. Why link these videos which are taken off as soon as they are posted? At least provide with an alternative link or post some stills, since it has become almost a given that the attached link will be barred.

  20. They removed the video. But if you guys search it on you tube, you'll find. Try to search for the words "Felix", "Niko" and "beijo", and you'll certainly find the kiss scene.
